      At the Altadena Farmer's market there's a food stall selling New Orleans food and he was selling them pralines, although not sure if he made it himself.

            Think "Best Little Worehouse" and New Year's day at our house . . . (Say "hey" to L for me.)

          I think Little John's in The Original Farmers Market makes it. They have the best English Toffee, that they make almost daily. I'd give them a call.

            I second Littlejohn's. My mother was a praline fanatic. Littlejohn's is a stellar praline.
